Young Supporters Council
What is the YSC?
Nexus created the Young Supporters Council (YSC) to support our Child Development Center located on campus. As a unique circle for individuals (40 and under), the YSC is for people passionate about recovery and seeking social networks to support our North Texas community. Join the YSC to connect with like-minded people and support Nexus families in need along the way!
About 1 in 8 children in America, ages 17 or younger, live in households where at least one parent has a substance use disorder (SUD). At Nexus, we believe providing a safe and secure place for children while their mothers are in treatment is an essential service. Nexus is one of the few treatment centers in the state that allows pregnant women, before and after childbirth, as well as parenting mothers to bring up to three children (ages 0-12) into treatment. Children at Nexus receive support through our Child Development Center, a licensed daycare facility that provides a nurturing environment as well as education, care, and onsite counseling to help build resilience and thrive.
What does the YSC do?
As a circle for community engagement, YSC memberships help raise funds to support Nexus’ Child Development Center. Members are encouraged to attend quarterly mixers held in the community or on campus at Nexus. We also encourage members to spread awareness of Nexus’ mission via social media, peer-to-peer fundraising, holiday events, and back-to-school drives. During the 2021-2022 year, several mixers will be held at a local venue or on campus at Nexus. Stay connected to learn future event dates, times, and locations!

Meet the YSC Chair
Board member, Cait Chapman, of the Daggerwing Group, serves as the inaugural Chair of the YSC. As a Senior Consultant, Cait is passionate about communication strategies and creative, effective branding. Prior to Daggerwing, Cait led the marketing efforts for the Aerospace and Defense business of Texas Instruments.
Cait was first introduced to Nexus through the Dallas Regional Chamber’s Young Professional Development Program and was completely touched by its mission to keep mothers and children together as they walk through recovery. She joined the Board at Nexus in 2018 and has served on the PR/Marketing and Strategic Planning committees. “Nexus is a fantastic organization where you’re able to see impact quickly,” says Cait. “We are entering into an exciting new chapter at this 50-year milestone, and it is the perfect time to get involved and support the next 50 (and beyond!).”
